Hale Farm is a working, family-run farm in Sussex.

They offer daily visits to meet and feed all the animals and have produce available to buy so you can enjoy sausages and free range eggs for breakfast.

Great site. Very friendly and the kids love the animals in morning. 17/07/2018

  • Liked: 

    The kids loved seeing the animals on the farm. Open from 9:00 - 10:30 every morning.
    We stayed on a Sunday night and it was so quiet. It was lovely.
    Had a fire in the fire pits. Great that each pitch has a fire pit.
    Bought sausages and eggs - fresh from the farm.. they were delicious.
    When to Drusillas Zoo on the 2nd day. Only 10 minutes away. Great place to stay if you're visiting the zoo.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing particularly to dislike.
    The toilets are sawdust toilets, which are rustic as long as you aren't too bothered about dropping sawdust into the toilet.

  • Liked: 

    The farm owners are super friendly, particularly Scott who was happy to help with any request we had. The daily delivery of bacon, eggs and firewood is great! The field was big, and even though they were 'at capacity' there was still ample space for kids to run around and no one was camping on top each other.
